No, I don't think the article should be deleted as it's a perfectly valid encyclopedic topic, but I'd like a thoughtful discussion of whether the current content is appropriate. (Obviously, I don't think it is; I don't think graphic depictions of torture, even period woodcuts, are appropriate, and at the moment that's all this article is).

Keep The article, though a microstub should be kept until it can be fleshed out. I'd help with pictures of the devices themselves (though pictures of their use should be avoided), but I'm unable to upload.Crackertalk 14:18, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Delete or at least correct it, as the Spanish Inquisition was not authorized by the Church. --Luke-Jr 14:20, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Actually, it was, and the office of the Inquisition still exists in the Church of Rome today. It's known as the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly the Holy Office of the Inquisition. Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the Vatican website.

The "Church of Rome today" didn't exist in 1252. As for the Catholic Church, the Inquisition in general was authorized, and was a very good thing (and in great need of reinstatement today!), but the Spanish Inquisition was not part of it. --Luke-Jr 10:56, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
How was it a good thing? Niwrad 23:30, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
Keep and expand: The topic just isn't fleshed out yet.--Splark 11:19, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
Keep, this is a very important historical event. MountainDew 17:23, 15 March 2007 (EDT)
